[Dean of Law]

My name is Professor Trish Mundy and I'm the Dean of Law at UOW Law. In 2018 we launched our Law program at our Liverpool campus, so UOW South West Sydney. Our Liverpool campus offers many opportunities for students and the Law school. Opportunities including community engagement, opportunities around research partnerships. We also encourage our students to have international experiences. Whether that's going to exchange overseas or whether that's international experiences in the classroom.

[Student 1]

In school I studied legal studies and I found that quite interesting. I thought that law was a degree for me and as a result I'm pursuing it now with the University of Wollongong.

[Dean of Law]

One of the key features of UOW Law is its' First Year Integrated Program. One of the elements of the First Year Integrated Program is its' Pods and Pods is essentially where students are grouped together and they study with the same group of students across all of their subjects in the first semester of their first year. This has the real benefit of facilitating strong friendships, strong study groups and really a much more personalized connection with not only their classmates but with the teaching staff.

[Student 2]

In the first year of law we're assigned into POD groups and it's really beneficial because you get to know everybody in your class. It's a really supportive network.

[Dean of Law]
